Following on the heels of a massively successful first season, M-Net announced today that it has started production on a second season of MasterChef South Africa, and the search for amateur cooks is back on!
M-Net's Channel Director for General Entertainment, Theo Erasmus, says that the first season of the series was one that M-Net was immensely proud of: “MasterChef SA Season 1 became the talk around the water cooler for South Africans everywhere. Viewers of the show became incredibly invested in the amazing journeys of each contestant of the series, right until the end when Deena Naidoo was crowned the winner.”
“We can't think of a better time to kick off auditions for the second season — coinciding with the same time that Deena will be launching his restaurant! Season 2 of MasterChef SA promises to serve up even more top quality entertainment that its predecessor,” Erasmus continued.
